The opposite side of the Cottage is identical to the other side, even down to the weathering!
In the bathroom, against the rear wall in the above photo is a sink, that came with the Cottage set. Moving down to the bedroom, the two beds and the chest between tham are also from the Cottage. I do think that the beds are too small. I measured them and they are 30mm long, which sounds good for a 28mm scale figure. But... they look underscaled. A length of 35mm would have been much better. Also, they are very low to the ground. I countered this by sticking them to a rectangular offcut of foamboard. Raising them by 5mm made a notable difference. Note that all of the doors of the Cottage can open and close. Each side of the door is reinforced with thin card with a sandwich filling of masking tape for the hinges.
The Cottage itself was very easy to build, especially as I have had loads of experience in reinforcing my card buildings. If I'd only used the furniture items provided with the set I think it would have looked very spartan. I felt it needed a lot more furniture adding. I am genuinely sorry that I couldn't furnish it purely with Stoezel products but at the time I had to work with what was in my collection. How was I to know that I'd find most of the missing stuff in future sets from Carl?
My experience of building the Cottage has only whetted my appetite to make a lot more Stoezel's Structures models. Indeed, I am now working on Carl's Warehouse model. I said in a previous post that Stoezel's Structures are now my favourite card models, having knocked WWG from my number one place. Carl is making the type of buildings that I want to use in my model city. I just wish I had more time to get them all built as there isn't one in his catalogue that I don't want to make. If you'd like to know a lot more about Stoelzel's Structures I can recommend joining or just checking out his online forum, which can be found here I've found Carl to be a very friendly bloke. Best of all, he listens to suggestions and will, if valid, make changes to a set. Customer service at its best!
Incidentally, I buy all of his products from the Wargame Vault, which can be found here Check it out, as just today Carl has added three new models.
